Great trip with informative and not too cheesy commentary. Great to see the city skyline from the water as the sun set behind it. Get their early if you want a seat on the upper deck as they were snapped up quickly!

The cruise was slow and informative about the history of the Boston Harbor and nearby areas. Snacks and refreshments were limited and costly. Bring a jacket it gets cool. Overall it was a great cruise.

Excellent trip, staff great and luckily superb weather on the evening.
